FIRE OVER BELFAST is a series of photographs made in Belfast from 1986 to 1992 by Barbara Beirne.

"I was shocked by the number of soldiers on the streets with automatic rifles. Children resented having soldiers in their neighborhoods. The boys often showed their anger but the girls tried to avoid trouble," writes Ms. Beirne.

A documentary photographer, Ms. Beirne, with tender honesty, explores a world of our not too distant past. In closing she writes, "How the soldiers reacted to a photographer depended on the amount of violence that day. Most of the soldiers were surprised to see an American and only once was I forced to give them my film."
